All even numbers are multiples of 2, so they have 2 in their prime factorization. No odd numbers are divisible by 2, so no add number has 2 in its prime factorization.

Because the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic specifies that every integer greater than 1 has its own unique prime factorization, it is impossible to specify what each of these prime factorizations is, however, it is true that the prime factorization of every even number includes the number 2 as the lowest prime factor.

If the factorization includes the number 2, it's even. If not, it's odd.

All prime numbers are not odd numbers. 2 is an even prime number, and it is the only even prime number because all other even numbers have 2 as one of their factors.

Prime Factorization of 84No, 7 X 12 is not the prime factorization of 84. In order to be prime factorization, all factors must be prime numbers. 7 is prime, but 12 is not. Since it is an even number, 2 will divide into it. 2 times 6 is 12, so the factorization would be 7 X 2 X 6. Since 6 is not a prime number, that is not the prime factorizatio of 84. The factors of 6 are 2 and 3. That means the factorization is 7 X 2 X 2 X 3. All the factors are now prime numbers, so the prime factorization of 84 with the factors in order from smallest to largest is 2 X 2 X 3 X 7. When finding the prime factorization of any number, you have to keep factoring any composite factors until all the factors are prime.

I'm not sure what you mean by that. Prime numbers don't have prime factorizations because they are already prime.

If there are no numbers to divide - not even 1 - then you have made a mistake.

Prime Factorization of 22 is a prime number, so it does not have a prime factorization.

It's unclear why anyone would find that necessary. Even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8. Odd numbers end in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. It's more efficient to just look at the numbers.
